Description - Marie Antoinette by Dena Goodman
This book explores the many struggles by various individuals and groups to fix Marie Antoinette's identity and links these struggles to larger destabilizations in social, political and gender systems in pre Revolutionary and Revolutionary France. Looking at how Marie Antoinette was represented in politics, art, literature and journalism, it reveals how crucial political and cultural contests were enacted 'on the body of the Queen.'
